Flap Yo Wings: A Toronto Blue Jays Dynasty


Recommended Posts

I decided to post my dynasty now, 5 games through my season. I'm playing on the all-star level.

Toronto- Manager John Gibbons releases line-ups after the recent trades for David Wright, Ben Broussard, and Rickie Weeks.

RF- Alex Rios

1B- Shea Hillenbrand

CF- Vernon Wells

3B- David Wright

LF- Ben Broussard

SS- Aaron Hill

2B- Orlando Hudson

C- Gregg Zaun

DH- Frank Cattalanotto

" I am very confident that we will be able to contend this year with our line-up. Our off-season aquistions (Wright, Weeks, Broussard) will really help us out. The trades also freed up valuable cap room for us, so now we will be able to sign a big name free agent down the road."

The first game summary that I will write is from the 5th game in the season, because I just downloaded frapps so that I cana put pictures up.

Blue Jays Lose Heartbreaker to Red Sox in Ninth Inning

The game was all but over with two outs in the ninth inning with Gustavo Chacin on the bump going for the complete game. Edgar Renteria was on first, and Brandon League was warming up in the pen when Trot Nixon stepped up to the plate. Nixon patiently waited on Gustavo's change-up and hit it 379 feet over the left center field wall at TD Banknorth Field. Keith Foulke shut the Jays down in the bottom of the ninth to pick up his first save.

At the beginning of the game, Gustavo Chacin pitched flawless, striking out 4 batters in the first two innings. David Wright gave the Blue Jays an early lead on his first homer of the year. His solo shot made the score 1-0. However, the Red Sox would answer back in the fourth inning with a Mark Bellhorn RBI single that scored Trot Nixon. In the 6th inning Frank Cattalanotto broke the tie with a solo shot of his own to right field, and that brought the score to 2-1. Both pitchers pitched well, Chacin went 8 2/3 and Wade Miller went 8 innings. However Chacin was charged with the loss after he gave up Nixon's home run.

"This was a very disappointing loss for us, Gustavo pitched a good game, but Wade Miller pitched a better game. I probably should've pulled Chacin after he retired Ortiz, but I thought that he would do good against Nixon because it was left against lefty, however I was wrong." Manager John Gibbons

Arroyo Pitches One-hit Complete Game Shutout Against Jays

Toronto Canada- Today was all about Bronson Arroyo. He threw a flawless game, allowing only one hit to Alex Rios in the fourth inning. As for Bruce Chen, he didn't do so well. Chen and Arroyo were in a pitchers duel for 8 innings when Edgar Renteria hit a 2 run homer, and 3 batters later Jason Varitek hit a three run homer.

" Arroyo pitched a gem, there's nothing that we can do about it now, we just have to keep going out there and winning ball games. We're much better than our 2-3 record says." John Gibbons

Blue Jays Rally Late Against Schilling for the Win

Toronto- The Blue Jays showed alot of heart today, rallying in the late innings to beat Curt Schilling. The Sox got on the board in the top of the first inning with a Manny Ramirez RBI single that scored Johnny Damon. Jays pitcher Ben Sheets settled down after that (not allowing another run in the game after Manny's single). In the 6th inning after an Alex Rios walk and a Shea Hillenbrand K, David Wright doubled down the right field line to score Rios. In the top of the 7th inning Bill Mueller was robbed at the wall in right by Alex Rios on what looked to be his first homer of the year. The score was tied 1-1 until the 8th inning when Vernon Wells teed off on a Curt Schilling fastball for a solo home run.

Brandon League came in at the beginning of the ninth and shut down the Sox for his second save of the year.

Lilly Pitches Gem; Blue Jays Win Second Straight Game

Toronto- Ted Lilly was the star of the game today. He pitched 9 fabulous innings, only allowing three hits, while striking out six. Lilly also did not allow a run in his 9 innings of work. The offense was running on all cylinders today, but they didn't score until the 8th inning when Orlando Hudson doubled, and later scored on an Alex Rios Single. In the top of the ninth inning, Vernon Wells reached first on an error by first baseman Scott Hatteberg. After David Wright popped out, Ben Broussard singled to right. Then Aaron hill hit a double into the right-centerfield gap, making the score 2-0, and that was also the final score.

Breaking News: Jays swap Sheets to Minnesota for Santana

Toronto- Today, the Blue Jays traded Ben Sheets, Reed Johnson, and Frank Menechino to the Twins for Johan Santana. Owner/GM slickmarcusvick had this to say about the trade, " We really wanted to get Santana for a while. We would've traded Sheets right after we got him, but both Minnesota and us wanted to give our aces one last start before the trade. I think that this trade will benefit both sides, and quite frankly I'm excited to see Santana pitch in Toronto".

Jays Barely Slide Past A's to Win Their 3rd Game in a Row

Toronto- The game today was basically a pitchers duel; with both starters going the distance, and each starter giving up two hits. You wouldn't normally expect a pitchers duel from Josh Towers and Danny Haren, but that's exactly what the game was. In the 5th inning Ben Broussard lead off the inning by stretching a single into a double. After Broussard, Russ Adams struck out. However, Rickie Weeks knocked a base hit to center which put runners on first and third with Gregg Zaun at the plate. Zaun hit a deep sacrifice fly to Charles Thomas in left field. However, that was the only run in the game. The defense was great on both sides, but Toronto was able to squeak by with a 1-0 win in Oakland.

With the win today Toronto improved to 5-3 on the year
